Here’s another report by Bill Sweeney from Mid-State Health. Bill creates awesome flat file reports. This is just begging for some simple list work in Excel (See my Data-Driven Practice page). In my practice we didn’t fully realize how expiration dates worked. We used 1 year later — now patients portal is expiring. We need [...]

This template was created by Christine Hunter, PA-x. (x stands for extraordinary) This includes some billing codes (so you can get credit for reviewing and interpreting Vanderbilts, for example.) Psychological_Testing Template
Thanks to everyone who participated. I learned a lot about hosting a webex. The more I edited myself out of the podcast, the bettter it gets. Load in iTunes: There’s some sweet nuggets in here. So load it into your phone and listen during your commute.
The Medicare e-Rx code drove my practice crazy last year. We e-prescribe all the time and many of us successfully attested for Meaningful Use. But the e-prescribing rule doesn’t allow for tracking that way. Instead it requires a bonus g-code be submitted. Please, Medicare, stop the madness! Sara Evans rightly recognized this as a reporting [...]
I’ve wanted this for several years — I think it’ll improve flow, reduce disparities in vitals and reduce transcription errors on vitals. If we implement this right, we can even use it to improve the human-ness of our rooming. Keith Tom’s practice uses it and loves it. Here’s their quick video. By the way, Keith, [...]
There’s been a discusssion on SupportCenter about Coumadin Plans. Mal Riddell has offered his template: Coumadin Plan Template Mal’s process: We use a shortcut for our INR/PT patients that includes a 99211 charge for the most part. If I see them significantly, I delete the charge and add the appropriate charge after the visit. The [...]
I don’t always log out and shutdown my computer every day. Partly because things change and sometimes I’m gone. I don’t shutdown because I often log onto my machine from home (so it needs to be powered on). I don’t plan learning to logout. It’s nice to come back to the machine (via RDP) with [...]
Keith Toms wrote this report. Keith wrote a crystal report that automagically presents immunization in the format for Kentucky. Like this: Kentucky 2011 immunization certificate Keith is a favorite here at unchart. He’s a happy user of my e-MDs macros and an original ‘Venture Capitalist’ who’s help paid for the Visit Summary Server.
Chat Kidkul made this report Chat says: Search for single drug by strength and form. Based on Single Drug Current & Past Med Search 6.2 report. Added the Strength and Form criteria to help narrow down the search. This is a more general (and well written) example of what I did recently to screen patients [...]
I actually changed the orange starred part of the template so I can document both for MU and PQRI (tobacco assessment clinical )quality measure. So I only have to document the status once and then if I prescribe a smoking cessation medication or counsel a patient (and document in the plan section) I get credit [...]
We add a special pop up alert to patients who have a name that is the same or similar to existing patients. For example, I worry about a medical assistant calling someone with lab results and not noticing that they have the wrong “Bob Smith.” A pop-up doesn’t solve the problem, but at least the [...]
Our staff chronically write pop up alerts and forget to check any of the boxes. This looks for those instances so we can manually correct. It’s a quick fix, so I run it about one a week. (My macro for looping through charts could be useful with this. Add the account number and then loop [...]
With Meaningful Use there will be a lot more clicking in life. Making sure that a patient’s chart is up to date (Problems, Allergies, Medications, etc) is more important than ever. Especially now that patients will be getting copies of their clinical summaries with many visits. Meaningful Click is an app for Docs using e-MDs [...]
In 2008 I did some templates for e-MDs that you still can find on the supportcenter. These are based on a validated documentation tool called PADT. Chronic Pain Followup.zip Chronic Pain Plan.zip You can find tons of great info on this on google: google: padt opiate Back when I was on paper, I used this [...]
Much e-MDs is focused on visits to the doctor. (Chart, Bill, Schedule). But it also has panel-managment tools like Order Tracking, Refills, Unsigned Notes. These let you at a glance see how your practice is doing overall. Un-Unsigned is a panel management tool for making sure that you’re signing off the thousands of documents that [...]
